Leadtek Outs Custom Cooled GeForce GTX 560 Ti Hurricane

Leadtek has been pretty quiet in the last couple of months, but now the Taiwanese company has gone out of its hiding and announced a new graphics card based on Nvidia's GeForce GTX 560 Ti design.

The card is known as the WinFast GTX 560 Ti Hurricane and it was built in order to feature a high-end custom cooler that was developed in-house by Leadtek.

This is designed so that it features a large copper base for the GPU connected to a pair of 8mm cooper heat-pipes which conduct heat to a massive aluminum heatsink.

The heatsink spans most of the card and is topped by a pair of 90mm fans specially tweaked to lower the noise emissions of the Hurricane.

According to Leadtek, its custom cooler generates only 21dB of noise when running in idle and 43dB when the GPU is fully loaded, which is a significant improvement over the cooling solution used in the reference GTX 560 Ti design.

Despite the redesigned cooler installed in the WinFast GTX 560 Ti Hurricane, Leadtek chose not to increase the operating clocks of its creations over those recommended by Nvidia, so the GPU works at 822MHz, while the 1GB of GDDR5 memory at 1002Mhz (4008MHz data rate).

The rest of the specs are pretty much identical with those of other GTX 560 Ti solution on the market, the Hurricane featuring two DVI-I connectors and one mini-HDMI video output as well as an SLI connector. Power is supplied through a pair of 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors.

Sadly, Leadtek hasn't provided us with any information regarding the release date or the availability of the WinFast GTX 560 Ti Hurricane graphics card.

The company did however mention that is preparing to release a few other solution in the Hurricane series, all of these using a similar dual-fan custom cooler.
